Author Ryan T. Anderson said his book, “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment,” has been removed from Amazon. Critics pointed out that the online retailer has a history of censoring books that don’t coincide with the company’s liberal political views.
So @amazon announcing that it will no longer sell books with "material we deem inappropriate or offensive" makes me wonder if they'll start with The Bible, The Koran, or The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.— Ben Domenech (@bdomenech) February 27, 2021
“I hope you’ve already bought your copy, cause Amazon just removed my book “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment” from their cyber shelves…. my other four books are still available (for now),” Anderson tweeted. Here he is in an interview with Laura Ingraham.
Now Amazon is invoking a new policy banning books that promote “hate speech.” That’ll be their view of hate speech of course.
And interestingly, this cause célèbre is directed at one of the first groups to protest for equality: women. Proving, yet again, that the progressive war on women is real. I don’t know about you but I have given up on Amazon services. Walmart isn’t perfect but it’s in my neighborhood providing jobs to neighbors and I’m sending my online business their way.
